About the Acquisition

Berlin lawyer Hanspeter Rabe is a passionate and committed collector of art. In recent decades, he has supported the oeuvre of the painter Eugen Schönebeck intensively and with great empathy. Rabe is thus one of the artist's oldest and most important patrons. Some of the most famous art museums in Germany have him to thank for valuable loans. The Städel Museum is grateful to Hanspeter Raabe not only for the important portrait of Lenin and a large collection of drawings as generous gifts, but also for the three important long-term loans: 'Siqueiros' (1966), 'Young Woman' (1962) and 'The Decoy' (1963), which date from Schönebeck's earliest creative period.

Video

  • Kunst nach 1945: Eugen Schönebeck
    Im Rahmen der Reihe "Kunst nach 1945" stellt Eugen Schönebeck (geboren 1936 in Heidenau bei Dresden) im Gespräch mit Martin Engler, Leiter des Sammlungsbereichs Gegenwartskunst im Städel Museum, seine Werke vor, die im Städel Museum zu sehen sind. Wie war es, als Künstler im Berlin der 60er Jahre zu wirken? Warum wählte Schönebeck gerade die politischen Themen für seine Bilder, die seine Werke aus den 60er Jahren zeigen? Diesen und weiteren Fragen spürt der Film nach. http://www.staedelmuseum.de/de#youtube
